Jonny Bairstow, England’s most passionate of wicketkeeper-batters, turns 32 today, and the milestone represents the perfect excuse to watch back his 139 off 92 balls against Australia at Trent Bridge. Coming in 2018, the performance represents one of Bairstow’s most iconic in an England shirt, as his side broke their own world record for the highest total in One Day Internationals, posting a ridiculous 481/6 off their 50 overs. An understrength and exhausted Australian team was left battered and bruised as they were bowled out for 239 in reply.
Happy Birthday, @jbairstow21! 🎉
